Well for those of you who are interested, I am Mr. Victor Andrew Mathis. I actually joined this forum only a short time before it happened and for reasons regarding legal concerns have avoided posting on any of these sites for the last 3 months because of this nonsensical episode. I appreciate everyone's concern about my plight, and I am sure you will be pleased to hear that not only did my editorial in the Andalusia Star News immediately following my arrest result in me finding FREE legal counsel, but, as of yesterday afternoon (14 September 2007), the City of Andalusia's prosecuting attorney joined a legal motion for Dismissal filed by myself on the grounds that the AG Opinion referenced in many of your posts as well as a certain Alabama Supreme Court decision rendered my actions COMPLETELY legal. Thus, all charges against me have been dropped and I am now focusing my attention on the restraining order placed on me by Wal Mart, who, without legal cause for banning me from there stores, open themselves up to civil action considering how far they ride on the piggy-back of public dollars (in breaks in utilities, road construction, traffic lights for new stores, etc...). While this is somewhat of a moral victory for me, it just goes to show how contradictory the laws are here in Alabama, and only strengthens my concerns about my "rights" to bear arms. Again, thank you to those of you who showed concern about my situation. I think that the "packing" community should really come together and stand up and speak out much more often than what we do. I look forward to any and all replies.
Thanks for taking the time to share your concerns and God bless America.
Apparently not. I was wearing my wedding attire and had on a navy blue cap with an orange T. Not sure why they cared, they didn't look like sports fans.....at least not college football.Malum Prohibitum said:They did not like the wedding party's orange T-shirts?
